2.         Non-Personally Identifiable Information

“Non-Personally Identifiable Information” can be technical information or it can be demographic information, such as your age, gender or interests. Non-personally identifiable information does NOT identify you personally. Here are some examples of the non-personally identifiable information that is collected via the Site and a description of how this information is used:

  • Internet Protocol (IP) Address: Your IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data - such as the web pages you view. This information is used to deliver our web pages to you upon request, to tailor our Site to the interests of our users and to measure traffic within the Site.
  • Cookie:  A “cookie” is a small text file that may be used to collect information about your activity on the Site. For example, when someone visits a page within the Site, a cookie is placed on the user’s machine (if the user accepts cookies) or is read if the user has visited the Site previously. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but if you do, you may not be able to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other users on the Site.

B.        Use of Information Collected on the Site

1.         Personally-Identifiable Information

We use your personally identifiable information that is collected on the Site primarily for the following purposes:

  • To fulfill the terms of a contest or sweepstakes;
  • To help create and publish content most relevant to you;

C.        Sharing and Disclosure of Information

1.         Personally Identifiable Information

Your personally identifiable information may be shared or disclosed in the following instances:

  • To fulfill a service to you. For example, we may use your personally identifiable information to communicate with you regarding any content or communication submitted by you to the Site, to verify the accuracy of any content or communication submitted by you to the Site, and to deliver payment to you related to your content submissions to the Site.  Also, if you are entering a sweepstakes or contest, we may use your personally identifiable information in order to fulfill the terms of that promotion. This means that we may share the information for prize fulfillment purposes or mail carriers.

  • To unaffiliated third-party service providers, agents or independent contractors who help us maintain the Site and provide other administrative services to us (including, but not limited to, processing registration data, attempting to confirm the accuracy of any content or communication submitted by you to the Site, sending customer communications on Corporation’s behalf, and entry collection, winner selection and prize fulfillment for contests, sweepstakes and other promotions). Because such unaffiliated third-party service providers that help us administer our Site will have access to users’ personally identifiable information, if you do not wish for our unaffiliated third-party service providers to have access to your information, please do not register or submit any personally identifiable information to the Site.

  • To comply with the law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the requirements of law or comply with legal process served on the Corporation, protect and defend our rights or property, including the rights and property of the Corporation and the Site or act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of our end users.

  • To third parties as part of any corporate reorganization process including, but not limited to, mergers, acquisitions, and sales of all or substantially all of the Corporation or Site assets.

  • To protect against potential fraud, we may verify with third parties the information collected from this Site. In the course of such verification, we may receive personally identifiable information about you from such services.

Except as described in this Privacy Statement or at the time we request the information, we do not otherwise use, share or otherwise disclose your personally identifiable information to any third parties.

D.        Collection and Use of Information from Children Under the Age of 13

The Site is not directed to children under the age of thirteen and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of thirteen on the Site.
